There’s a lot of gun rights-related angst going round these days, what with Hillary on the horizon, the Supremes split on firearms freedom and California going full you-know-what on gun control. While the Fourth of July is an excellent day to renew our acommitment to the document underpinning our Constitutional republic, including but not limited to the Second Amendment, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate what we have. Why I love my country.
I love America because it’s the land of opportunity. A country where new ideas, products and projects have the best possible chance of finding their way to fruition, regardless of who’s promoting them. While Big Government protects Big Business and, thus, stifles innovation, it’s still game-on for the little guy. This is especially true in the firearms industry. Which is why I love it, too. How about you? What do you love about America?
[Pet peeve: our national anthem is a hymn! It’s meant to be sung by a group, not a solo performer.]
